ARIODANTE by Haendel

Directed by Pierre Strosser,
Grand Théâtre de Genève, November, 2007
Video image production by Robert Nortik and Zoltan Horvath

In order to enhance the production’s rhythm, the director’s choice was to create a character who paints onstage. Pierre Strosser et Benoît Delaunay (assistant set designer and video concept), opted for a rear projection onto a black cyclorama, on which the painter’s brush strokes would appear. With Zoltan Horvath, who is an animated film director, we produced white-on-black images that would appear as paintings in real time on the cyclorama. Two projectors allowed for 20 x 7 meter images.

FALSTAFF by Verdi

Directed by Philippe Arlaud
Festspiele Haus, Baden Baden, May, 2007
Video image design by Robert Nortik
Real-time mix with several projectors Niko Marchiel

Life is a farce ! 

In this our fifth collaboration, we worked from the beginning in the conception of the set in order to optimize video possibilities. Four projectors created a 40 x 8 meters image. After months of iconographic research, a downright image factory was available for use on the set. With Niko Marchiel’s help, Robert Nortik was even able to film  Ambrose Maestri, underwater, during his interpretation of Falstaff. It was all about mixing the researched images with the live ones, while keeping a technical and artistic control over the whole operation.

LES FIANCAILLES AU COUVENT by Prokovief

Directed by Philippe Arlaud
Stadthalle Bayreuth, Avril, 2006
Video image design by Robert Nortik
Real-time mix with several projectors

Rich from our previous experiences Philippe Arlaud and Robert Nortik created for this production a visual animated environment based on Caspar David Friedrich’s paintings. Classical painting remains an interesting source for contemporary visual invention, allowing us to confer a certain degree of sensuality-at low cost-  to computer produced images.

POPEA’S CORONATION by Monteverdi

Directed by Philippe Arlaud
Off Bayreuth, July, 2006 and Sankt Pölten
Video image design real-time mix with several projectors by Robert Nortik

Philippe Arlaud, who also did the lighting design, used video projectors as regular lighting projectors, thus exploring a new angle for video.  Projecting only form and color onto the red set allowed us to obtain electrifying results that cannot be produced through traditional lighting. In the midst of this exploration, Nortik Studio suggested a « trompe l’œil » -in lights- for example, by adding the shadows of flies caught in the projectors in the dying philosopher scene.

THE RING IN A SINGLE NIGHT by David Seaman, d’après Wagner

Directed by Philippe Arlaud
Off Bayreuth, July, 2006 and Sankt Pölten
Video image design real-time mix with several projectors by Robert Nortik

Perfectly choreographed script filtering the myths used by Wagner through the filter of contemporary video iconography. Projections were made on all the set elements, regardless of shape. The high point of the evening: an improvised mix with the orchestra playing the Walkyrie Overture.

ULYSSES’ HOMECOMING by Monteverdi

Directed by Philippe Arlaud
BFM, Geneva, June, 2006
Video image design and real-time mix with several projectors by Robert Nortik

Ulysses’ monumental boat was designed from still sea-shots to show the poetry that can be produced by the coming together of modern digital technology and the classical painters.

A multitude of rustling poppies during Melantho’s magnificent aria allowe us to use video as a paint brush and to esthetically complement the director’s work.
